Default Chance of upgrade

We have been given a cabin number already - we booked with the cruise line directly. Does that mean there is no chance of an upgrade?

If they have an upgrade for you they will advise you of that and ask if you want to take it.

Upgrades are not always good, in my opinion. They may be up a few decks and farther away from the activities but the same cabin layout. They may be up a single deck but right under the disco.

Since you have your cabin number you should be able to get on one of the web sites that have deck plans for your ship to make sure you want an upgrade if offered.

Regards,
Thomas

Hi,

I have to agree with the previous posting, the likelihood of an upgrade is slim at this point. But, never say never!

You might want to ask for a guarantee stateroom for your next cruise. You would have to wait until your cruise documents arrive, 1-2 weeks before your departure, to find out your exact cabin number, but in almost 10 years as a travel agent/cruise specialist, I have had very few clients with guarantee stateroom reservations that DON'T get a nice, usually big, upgrade on their stateroom. The guarantee staterooms are usually less expensive, too.

I actually don't think that staterooms that are further to the front or back of the ship are bad. You would have fewer people walking by your stateroom, so your stateroom is more quiet and private.

Have a great day!
Julia
